The concept behind the artwork ‘Frequency’ deals with different forms or mediums of communication devices with the intention of conveying a coded message to the viewer’s sub conscious mind.
This artwork takes the form of an encoded message using written text, transmission signals and pictorial forms of visual, auditory and tactile mediums. The composition is an important factor as it is designed to lead one eye in a continuous ‘loop’ within the borders of the canvas.
The coded message therefor lies beyond the imagery and objects, hidden and tucked away amongst the memory and experience of the viewer’s non-linguistic internal universe.
